More than 500 teams answered Architecture for Humanity's call to design a mobile HIV/AIDS clinic for education, testing, prevention, and treatment of the disease in Africa. Competition winners were announced on World AIDS Day 2002. KHRAS Arkitekter in Virum, Denmark, took first place. Brendan Harnett and Michelle Myers of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, won second place and best student entry. Third place went to Heide Schuster and Wilfried Hofmann, faculty members at the University of Dortmund in Germany. And the winners of the Founder's Award were Paris architects Gaston Tolila and Nicholas Gilliland. Selected submissions are on display at New York's Van Alen Institute.
